If you want them for free, I was shocked to see you can see the episodes at http://www.amctv.com/originals/the-prisoner-1960s-series/

AMC has the new remake series so they are also pushing the old episodes and they are on their website!

If you want to go all out, the bluray boxset of the old series is NOT expensive for so many hours of classic TV. I am looking to get it and wouldn;t need my DVD set anymore; I suspect there will be lots of people like me planning to trade their DVD sets or sell on eBay to 'upgrade' to the BR version.

There's a PD issue and the series has just been remastered for bluray. Why would you expect it to be here ever?

Ah AMC !!!!! I miss the old AMC..back when Nick Clooney and Bob Dorian would talk about the movies and where they would air unedited movies too. Not so much sex or violence but things that one cant get away with nowdays like those old Blondie & Dagwood flicks from the 40s. Like this scene in one of the old Blondie movies ( there were so many of them ) between Dagwood and baby Dumpling ( and a black man cleaning a room )...

Baby Dumpling: Daddy..what is that man doing?

Dagwood: Stay away Baby Dumpling..people like that are only good at cleaning houses !!!

Not that I agree with that stereotype but that was the way it was in the 40's. Can't change history. AMC in the 90s didn't. Today..well......
